Not only hemp stronger than traditional plastics, but it is also biodegradable and sustainability sourced. You can farm for hemp yearly in the same soil. There is no striping of the soil, with no need to swap crops a year from year to replenish the nutrients. Hemp has a greater bend strength that is stronger than steel and carbon fibers. It does not take up space in landfills because it is reusable for years, and when its thrown away, it degrades away. Hemp also does not bleed toxins into your food. Anything that is made from plastic can be made from hemp. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp MarcLouis 0 Questions 187 Answers 0 Best Answers 376 Points View Profile MarcLouis 2020-08-06T21:08:18-04:00Added an answer on August 6, 2020 at 9:08 pm In theory, hemp could replace everything made from plastic around the world. Hemp is entirely biodegradable and grows in abundance. On average, a hemp plant takes 90 to 140 to be ready to harvest. The biggest issue in replacing all plastic items with hemp plastic is the cost. Hemp plastic is more durable than petrochemical plastics and is more environmentally friendly. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 559 Points View Profile Abe 2020-07-26T00:51:37-04:00Added an answer on July 26, 2020 at 12:51 am With the severe speed of hemp overtaking the all kinds of products in the entire universe this fact is predictable but in far future maybe, because hemp grows abundantly, it makes an exceedingly efficient crop for the sustainable plastic called bioplastics and having this in mind of inventors the raised question could be com true in future, god knows! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Jade 0 Questions 69 Answers 0 Best Answers 139 Points View Profile Jade 2020-07-26T00:51:16-04:00Added an answer on July 26, 2020 at 12:51 am Bioplastics are great, lightweight, biodegradable, and we can replace a lot of regular plastics with hemp plastic. There are some things that need more flexibility or strength. There’s a lot of things, from medicine packages to cars made of plastic. One at a time, they are testing the possible applications, but some end up too expensive or otherwise too inefficient to use hemp. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Contriver 0 Questions 21 Answers 0 Best Answers 43 Points View Profile Contriver 2020-07-25T12:11:42-04:00Added an answer on July 25, 2020 at 12:11 pm Hemp is an extremely wonderful crop that can be used to create sustainable plastics, which are also called as “bioplastic.” These bioplastics are made from a combination of hemp, and other resources, 100% hemp-based plastic is still a rarity. Hemp-based plastics are stronger and stiffer than standard plastic, which makes it a good alternative or replacement for it. While replacing everything that is plastic with hemp plastic is possible, it might take many years to happen. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Moogdummy 0 Questions 246 Answers 0 Best Answers 521 Points View Profile Moogdummy 2020-05-04T09:12:02-04:00Added an answer on May 4, 2020 at 9:12 am Everything? Probably not. To get hemp to replace all plastics would be a MASSIVE undertaking. It probably could replace certain things, but not all plastics. We already use a lot of plant cellulose-based products in some places. Because hemp grows so aggressively, I bet we could eventually use it to replace more plastics as time goes on, but not quite EVERYTHING. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
